The Gainesville Gaviatas is a competitive artistic (aka synchronized) swimming team that was founded in 1997. Our competitive teams compete in meets throughout the state of Florida and nationwide. Our recreational (noncompetitive) swimmers practice weekly and perform with the entire team at local shows. The Gaviatas team accepts both male and female swimmers between the ages of 5-18. Our season begins in August and ends in June. The team is a member of the USA Artistic Swimming organization.
